Bedrooms Are For People


The Problem

In most of Boulder, it is illegal for more than three unrelated people to live together. For example, this means that in most of Boulder it is illegal for four unrelated people to live together in a four-bedroom house. It doesn't matter how big the house is, how old the residents are, or if the owner lives in the home.


Some Reasons Why this is a Problem


Our Solution

Our Solution

Instead of only allowing three unrelated people to live together, we believe a simple, common-sense change would be to allow one person living in each bedroom of a home. After all, bedrooms are for people. 

Our specific ballot language:

Shall the City of Boulder expand access to housing by allowing all housing units to be occupied by a number of people equal to the number of legal bedrooms, plus one additional person per home, provided that relevant health and safety codes are met?

put simply....

Our initiative would make it so that up to four unrelated people would be allowed to live together in a three-bedroom house, up to five unrelated people would be allowed to live together in a four-bedroom house. Etcetera.



Our measure does not impose any new restrictions on any groups — it only EXPANDS housing options for everyone. Our ballot measure would not affect traditional families. Traditional families are already allowed to have an unlimited number of people living together, and those guaranteed federal legal protections for families will remain the same when our measure passes.

it's a  small but  mightystep in the right direction.
